A well thought-out perfume could be the best Mothers Day gift choice ever if you follow a few simple guidelines. Your mom will be flattered and happy that you took the time to seek out a custom scent you know she will love, and it is one of those gifts that keep gibing; every time your mom spritzes on that fragrance she is sure to think of you lovingly. Before you go shopping, take a few minutes to think about the following items, and you are sure to choose a perfume that pleases mom!
Remember, the most important thing here is not the fragrance itself, but the fact that you, her loving son/daughter, took the time to think about and locate that special bottle. Be sure to spin a narrative that relates to your mother why you chose x perfume over all other choices. In my case, I might say: “I have been thinking about your delicious rice pudding lately and remembering all the times you nourished me when I was young. I found this scent (let’s say I give her Hermessence Ambre Narguile by Jean-Claude Ellena, which smells like vanilla, cream, tobacco, and raisins) and it reminded me so much of a bowl of your comforting rice pudding that I just had to give it to you, to let you know how much your love over the years means to me”…etc. You probably get my point.
I hope this little guide will be useful as you navigate the vast world of perfume to find the right thing for your mother this Mother’s Day. Good luck, and happy hunting!
